YouthCon is almost here and it continues to generate a nearly-unprecedented level of excitement and anticipation! Scheduled for this coming Sunday, August 21, in Stamford, CT, YouthCon has already reinforced NCSY‘s position as the address where professionals of all stripes go for up-to-date information on working with youth in our community. Over 400 professionals, representing all streams of the Jewish spectrum, will be coming together to learn from the best of the best, including 50 national leaders in Jewish education. Rabbi Steven Burg, International Director of NCSY, appeared on JM in the AM to discuss this historic venture; you can read about it and link to the audio here.
It goes without saying that the OU is proud of this groundbreaking event. We are especially proud of the way in which YouthCon represents an inter-departmental effort involving NCSY,JSU and Synagogue Services. As incredible as the program is, we always shep additional nachas from the inter-connectivity of OU departments working together. You can get the whole story at www.youthcon.org.
